Healing After Loss (Martha Whitmore Hickman)

"Feeling light within, I walk" 
- Navajo Night Chant

 

Each of us carries a light within, though often it seems shrouded in darkness. But it is there - that spark that causes us to respond to love, care, beauty, and need in the world, even when we are sad. Perhaps, indeed, when we are sad we react with even more intensity to the gifts and opportunities life offers.

But can we mobilize ourselves to walk, made courageous by that light within? Sometimes, especially when we are grieving, we hang back, fearful. Feeling immobilized, we want someone else to take the initiative. 

We have more power than we give ourselves credit for. We will learn the extent of that power only be claiming it and stepping forth. Are we afraid of failure? What have we to fear that can compare with what we have already lost?

So let's take a deep breath and let the sense of that light within burn steady. Then let's move on into our lives, imagining that the one we have lost is helping fan that flame and is cheering us on. 

Conscious of my own light and power, I move on into my life.
